I think these Gorilla mudflaps looks the business, and will offer some protection to those who use their fozzies as it should be used ;)

I'd like to place an order, but shipping cost is a bit crazy for one set (around R1100 [emoji43]). Anyone else interested? Looking to get at least 5 sets to make it more affordable..

Interested buyers:

1. NeilF
2. NeilV
3. 0012
4. Cool bru (WA group member)
5. Fudmucker

I got them in 2013 and put them on my then 2009 XT. They work great, but just be careful when you get stuck in mud and need to reverse out. They are a bit tall and tyres will eat them up. My wife managed to do that...

Updated list, we need some more buyers!

I checked out the rally armour mud flaps on eBay, looks good, but about R600 more expensive per set than the gorilla flaps.

List updated.

I've contacted the supplier and they have agreed to 5% discount for 5+ sets and 10% discount for 10+ sets.

So currently with usps priority mail (5 sets per box) and "pre-zuma-stays" $-R exchange rate prices would be:

4 people - R1460
5 people - R1348
10 people - R1288 (2 boxes)

Import tax excluded

So I received a final quote for 5 sets.

Shipping amounts to $125 (USPS priority mail).

Total is $552.26 (including 5% discount), so $110.45 per person. That's currently R1427.05

We need one more buyer though. Any takers?
